sparkline

NPM package version License: MIT Minified size Minified+Gzip size

Generate SVG sparklines with JavaScript without any external dependency.

Instalation

This lib is available as a NPM package. To install it, use the following command:

npm install @fnando/sparkline --save

If you're using Yarn (and you should):

yarn add @fnando/sparkline

You'll have to call sparkline.sparkline(svg, values, options) directly if you're loading the script without compiling your script (e.g. webpack). Otherwise you can simply import sparkline from "@fnando/sparkline";.

API

sparkline(svg, values, options = {})

  • svg: This is a <svg> reference that must contain three required attributes (width, height, and stroke-width). These attributes are used to calculate the drawing area.
  • values: You can either provide an array of numbers or an array of objects that respond to .value. If you have a different data structure, see options.fetch.
  • options: This optional argument allows you to further customize the sparkline. The available options are:
    • fetch: Use this function to return the value if you have a different data structure that's not natively supported by sparkline.
    • onmousemove: By setting this callback function, you'll enable the interactive mode (unless you set options.interactive to false). The callback signature is callback(event, datapoint), where datapoint is an object containing the value, x/y coordinates, and the item index.
    • onmouseout: This callback function is called every time the mouse leaves the SVG area. You can use it to hide things like tooltips.
    • spotRadius: Set the spot radius. The default is 2.
    • cursorWidth: Set the cursor width. The default is 2.
    • interactive: When true, this enables the interactive mode. You don't have to set this option if you're providing a onmousemove callback.

Usage

This is the minimum working example:

<!-- width, height and stroke-width attributes must be defined on the target SVG -->
<svg class="sparkline" width="100" height="30" stroke-width="3"></svg>

<script>
  sparkline(document.querySelector(".sparkline"), [1, 5, 2, 4, 8, 3, 7]);
</script>

You can change the colors by either setting the attributes directly to the SVG element or using CSS, like the following:

/* just the line */
.sparkline {
  stroke: red;
  fill: none;
}

/* line with highlight area */
.sparkline {
  stroke: red;
  fill: rgba(255, 0, 0, .3);
}

/* change the spot color */
.sparkline--spot {
  stroke: blue;
  fill: blue;
}

/* change the cursor color */
.sparkline--cursor {
  stroke: orange;
}

/* style fill area and line colors using specific class name */
.sparkline--fill {
  fill: rgba(255, 0, 0, .3);
}

.sparkline--line {
  stroke: red;
}
